Visted here on 2010-17-18 after hiking Sherando Lake in the George Washington National Forest

What a gorgeous setting in a valley surrounded by the devils backbone peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It makes a great first impression as you drive into the spacious parking area and look over to the swiss-chalet style brew pub.

As I walked up to the front door I noticed an outside dining area and around the corner, a spot for smoker's to smoke and have a brew. I later learned they sell a couple of decent quality cigars at the bar.

The inside is nice with very high ceilings with large, manufactured wooden beams and rustic-modern ski lodge feel. There are a couple of seating areas and a very attractive bar area with the on-tap selection written on a chalk board. You can see the brewing tanks behind the bar.

I sat at the bar and chatted with the friendly bartender while having an Eight Point IPA and a Vienna Lager. I ordered their specialty grilled cheese sandwich with three cheeses and a very generous dollop of sweet chutney. It was delicious and very reasonably priced.

I'll take a few points off my review for no cell phone signal and no wifi. Other than that, I really enjoyed it here and will go back again. (1,227 characters)

Visited on a mid-summer Thursday evening. Medium busy but server said it was a lot busier than expected. Seated right away but waited about 15 minutes for server to stop by. Not in a rush but would have been nice to get a drink order in. Service was friendly and good after initial slowness. Food was excellent. Would def try again. Hopefully they will have enough staff. (371 characters)

Great restaurant as well as brew pub. Packed with people having a great time. Many there for food as well as beer. Good bar with liquor and wine well supplied as well.
A bit disappointed that "flights" were fixed. So I skipped these. However, they had "shorties"/half pours. So sampling was still very easy, affordable and not toxic if you wanted more than a few.
Surprised and very happy to see so many "one offs" and variants on the tap list. All were great. Examples we tried included very good versions of Dbl Amber IPA, Imp Coffee Stout, Tart Saison with Cherries and a very nice steam brewed Tripel.
Nice eclectic menu of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Everything we ordered was well prepared, attractive and delicious.
Had a great time and wished I could have stayed longer.
DB is truly in the middle of nowhere, but very worth the drive. (854 characters)
